Sunny Side of Metro

The New York Solar Energy Industry Association has named Metro’s Frontier Garage “best photovoltaic solar project for New York state government in 2010.” The 6,000 Degrees award recognizes the best in solar energy across the state.

Metro’s solar panels installed last year have been a huge success. They saved the Authority $15,000 to date, while putting no pollution into the air. And that is just the first year. The panels are expected to last for another 25 years.

The racking equipment that holds the solar panels on the roof should also be recognized. The DynoRaxx system supporting the solar panels is made in Western New York and is now sold across the United States and in Canada.
